We are aware patients may receive a national letter offering the option to book a COVID vaccine at a mass vaccination site. If you wish to do this please just follow the instructions in your letter. If you prefer to have your vaccine locally via your GP surgery (at Tennant’s Auction House in Leyburn) then please just wait. Local GP practices will shortly be inviting those eligible who have not yet had their vaccine.
PLEASE DO NOT RING THE SURGERY TO ENQUIRE ABOUT HAVING IT LOCALLY. The number of phone calls we are receiving about vaccines is making it very difficult for other patients needing healthcare to speak to us. We will contact you offering you a local vaccine if you haven’t yet had one. Thank you for waiting your turn.
If you have had your first vaccine you will have been given the date for your second vaccine. It is your responsibility to keep this date in your diary/on your calendar.
Please note that if you attend at Tennants without an appointment, you will be turned away as all vaccines have been allocated to patients. If anyone doesn't attend their appointment, the vaccine is then offered to patients on the eligible lists by the centre staff.
If you have an appointment at Tennants, please do not try to enter the building before your appointment time. All patients need at arrive at their appointment time. If people arrive early this causes queues and delays in the system which is not fair to those arriving at the right time.
